If I have visited your QRZCQ page, I have probably heard you QRV on the bands that day.

Hello I am Pete, I was Born in the Wiltshire town of Wootton Bassett in 1950.

I started Short Wave Listening in 1963, so 60+ years later, I am still a very active Listener.

In 1966, I trained as a Royal Air Force Telegraphist.
(I was in the 306th Apprentice Entry at RAF Cosford 1966-67).

I was Licensed as Amateur Radio Station MP4BIM - Bahrain Island in 1970 and 1971, whilst serving at RAF Muharraq. (MP4B callsigns later became A92 Callsigns).

I was an active Founder Member of the newly formed ARABahrain in 1971.
Unfortunately, I left Bahrain just before the new A9 callsigns were issued.

I also operated the club station - MP4BBA and the JOTA station - MP4BS.

I have the honour to be a Life Vice President of the International Short Wave League.

I am a very active SWL on all the Ham Bands, from 160m through to 10m.

I have heard and logged signals from 300 Current DXCC Countries.

I Monitor CW, RTTY, PSK, JT65, FT8 and other data modes, including the occasional SSTV.
I only use SSB for listening to specific club nets etc.

Most of my active monitoring is in PSK, RTTY, JT9, JT65 and FT8 at the present time.

My CW monitoring is less now, due to "CW deafness". (I no longer have a full hearing range).

I have no Interest in TX'ing.

When I send out Reception Reports, they are sent via (AG Life Member).

PSK Reporter uploads are Automatic when Monitoring the Digital Modes.

Vy 73 and thanks for visiting my QRZCQ Page.
